There was NO way we were NOT going to get our picture taken at this SUPPOSEDLY the last performance of ‘THE circus‘ in Manchester.

We were trying to work it this morning as to how many performances we have gone to. It is definitely at least 8 years in a row.

Kind of sad. I, however, think they will be back within 2 years.

Stay tuned. Many more pictures to post.

Sony’s Rebates On The Popular Alpha Mirrorless Cameras Continue Past April 1, 2017.

by Anura Guruge


The rebates, which were in the $200 — $300 range, were supposed to expire this last weekend — and that was NO April Fool’s prank.

But that has no happened as yet. If anything the likes of B&H are discounting even deeper.

There is a BIG Sony announcement scheduled for April 23, 2017 and my druthers is that Sony will keep the rebates going till past that. Depending on what is announced we could maybe even see further discounts on selected models, e.g. Sony a7 II.

So, as ever, a timely heads up.

Sony’s $200 – $300 Rebates On Most Cameras To END This Saturday, April 1, 2017?

by Anura Guruge

I, personally, am NOT too worried about this.

Yes, I do plan to buy a Sony camera in the near future BUT I am not going to rush headlong and get one before Saturday.

Having waited THIS LONG and I am going to wait till April 23rd to see what Sony announces.

In the current market Sony has to keep prices competitive. So IF these rebates end, Sony will have to come up with new ones.

Will The Rumored Sony a9 Full Frame Be Announced At Video-Oriented NAB Show On April 23, 2017?

by Anura Guruge

From the ‘New Camera’, March 24, 2017. Click image to access the original.

Yes, it is possible.

Sony hasn’t, as yet, announced ANYTHING in 2017.

That is unusual to go this long into a year without something from Sony.

Yes, this is very much a broadcasting-centric show; hence the emphasis is on video, film, virtual reality, mobile etc.

However, ANY camera Sony now announces will indeed have some impressive video capabilities. So there is that.

April 23 is just under a month away.

I guess we will just have to wait and see.

I do hope they make THE announcement. I really do want to go ahead and order a camera

Not sure why St. George is portrayed with a noticeable grimace. Are they trying to take the mickey? St. George is normally shown calm and composed as he does battle. Click to access the Doodle in Google’s archive.
